Color – Code Red at the Oscars

It was a big night for our industry yesterday…The Oscars!

Although we are sad to report that this year, no one wore any prints or graphics on the red carpet… we did take notice that REDS were the overall dominating colors of the night! Warm colors, along with asymmetrical shapes and strapless style gowns, were key elements worn by the biggest stars of the night!

Prints – Graphic Grayscale

As designers, sometimes we have to get a little graphic…and using black and white elements are a great way to get that point across!

We were instantly inspired by Pierre Dal Corso’s recent photography spread, and the optical, and graphic quality that he expressed through wardrobe styling.

Check out our trend interpretation below and download these images + more..

Wovens – Plaid and Stripe Play

We came across this great shot from the Sartorialist and we were instantly inspired by the experimental use of mixing a large neutral balanced plaid, against a bias striped tie!

We love that this look isn’t too over the top… It still has a classic appeal, but keeps the blazer style from looking too boring or traditional, especially with a little subtle color in the stripes!

Check out our inspired plaid & bias stripe combo board to download them.
